Over the past few weeks leading up to Lent (yes, Lent starts next week), I’ve been sharing with you how saints, popes, and councils give us advice as Catholics on how to fundraise…

This week is no exception.

Let’s talk about Saint John Chrysostom.

His name in Greek means “golden-mouthed.” With a nickname as incredible as this, we know he’s wise.

In one of his homilies, Saint John discusses the 1st Letter to Corinthians which happens to be foundational in my approach to fundraising. Here’s what St John said that has helped me become an even better Catholic fundraiser.

Brice was born and raised Catholic. After enjoying a successful career in technology consulting with Accenture and PriceWaterhouseCoopers in cities across the United States (Dallas, San Francisco, Paris, Abu Dhabi, and London) around the world, he left it to help his Catholic diocese in London, England with a fundraising campaign. The campaign went on to raise over $60 million, the largest sum ever raised for the diocese and in the United Kingdom.

Learning from professional fundraisers, he figured out the basics and then left the diocese to focus on what he loves most: building Catholic charities that change the culture, save lives, and save souls.

Brice currently lives in Texas and travels the world helping Catholics fundraise. This website is where he shares what he is doing and how he is raising funds for Catholic causes and missions. That way you can move more quickly with your next appeal.
